Eurocom Press Release – 5 August 2010
Eurocom’s new line of gamer-friendly notebooks features NVIDIA’s Optimus technology, which intelligently switches graphics between 1GB DDR3 NVIDIA GeForce GT330M and Intel HD integrated graphics to deliver optimal battery life (up to 240 minutes).
It also offers a choice of 15.6″ and 17.3″ Full HD 1920×1080 displays and comes with Intel Core i5 and Core i7 technology.
Eurocom FOX line of gamer-friendly notebooks features special VGA Optimus button that allows the user to switch between Optimus Mode (where GPU switching is automatic) and UMA Mode (for constant power-saving with he integrated GPU only).
- In the UMA Mode system will use only integrated GPU (part of Intel’s Arrandale technology) for maximum power-saving.
- In the Optimus Mode will allow the system to automatically determine whether to use discrete GPU (dGPU) and integrated GPU (iGPU) depending on task and/or application.
Thus the user can completely control how the graphics system operates just by pressing the VGA button – the button light will indicate the current mode.
- Green color: UMA Mode Activated. The system will use the integrated GPU (iGPU) only
- Orange color: Optimus Model Activated. Optimus technology will determine automatically when to use the integrated GPU (iGPU) or discrete (dGPU).
There are also two separate GPU LED indicators displaying which GPU is in use; Green – Integrated GPU (iGPU) activated; Orange – Discrete GPU (dGPU) activated.
The EUROCOM Fox line is available for order today starting at CAD$999 for 15.6″ B5100M FOX and CAD$1199 for 17.3″ B7110 FOX model.
